I’ve always thought that Permaculture was a practice that you needed land to do. I have to admit that I never really looked into it much because of that assumption. Then I was at work the other day and a book on the coffee table caught my eye. Gaia’s Garden, Second Edition: A Guide To Home-Scale Permaculture by Toby Hemenway.
Home-scale permaculture, what’s that? Don’t you need pigs, chickens and cows for permaculture. I thought the whole idea was about a rotation on a wider scale. To naturally fertilize the land by rotating where you grow the crops and where the animals graze. Now technically I’ve never read a word about the subject, so you’ll have to forgive my ignorance.
I decided to sit down with the book at lunch. I just flipped through it for a bit, but its obvious that I need to learn more about this subject. I ordered the book today. This will be my introduction into a subject that I have a new found excitement for.
